Caorle is a town on the northern coast of the Adriatic Sea, in the province of Venice, in the region of Veneto, in northeastern Italy.
More on Caorle
The history of Caorle goes back to the 1st century BC, when it was established by the Romans. An influx of refugees from Concordia Sagittaria escaping the invasion by Barbarians helped it grow. It eventually became one of the nine major cities of the Republic of Venice.
Due perhaps to its proximity to Venice, Caorle has developed into a tourist town. Its architecture is sometimes reminiscent of Venice, with different colored houses, small alleyways called “calli” and squares.
Take the A4 (E55) expressway to Santo Stino di Livenza, then continue on the SP59 heading south till Caorle.
